Product Description


'One Word Extinguisher is an apposite title for the new Prefuse 73 LP. Anyone who experienced Scott Herren's debut, Vocal Studies and Uprock Narratives, will already know about his unique approach to producing hip-hop, but if not, this follow-up is an even better place to check it. On his new joint, Herren excels once again at chewing up traditional beats and rhymes with his MPC and spitting them back out as quasi-cubist digital fragments, creating rapid-fire, neck-snapping snares and stuttering, karate-chop vocals. His technique makes for a highly original and slightly avant sound, though most of the genuinely breathtaking rhythm-and-verbal assaults here are tempered by a melodic fluidity that ensures cerebral stimulation as well as heavy head-nod action. Once again, Herren has straddled the worlds of glitch-beep electronica and hip-hop without missing a beat, and has ensured that he occupies a league of his own--one that has to be heard to be believed. --Paul Sullivan

If there is something that proves hip hop can be a limitless, utterly compelling thing, this is it. Every bit as nuanced and produced as IDM electronic music, this takes pure hip hop elements, and filters them down through relentless breakbeats, and lovely electo textures. Attacking staight out of the box with the jazzed out turntablism of "The End of Biters- International" then segwaying into the contemporary hip hop of "Plastic", this more than any thing out there shows the heights this music can be taken to, and that's further than the eye can see. The utter attention to detail, and beauty can not only be admired, but enjoyed thoroughly. The entire record stays well within the lines of excellence, and is a real treat for anyone who loves the feel of either music (ie: hip hop, electronic). Prefuse 73 has an utterly precious musical proposal that will probally keep him away from mainstream acceptance, but virtually guarantees his ascension to greatness in both the hip hop, and electronic undergrounds, if he isn't there already.

prefuse is amazing, and this just another example of him showing us. i first heard this album coming home from boston with my brother and was amazed. some are thrown off by the caotic junction of samples, bass riffs and electronica, but reguardless this is hot. this album starts out bumping (forget the intro) and doesn't quit untill every last bone in your body has been jostled delightfully. prefuse uses samples that are as i said earlier, not by any strech of the imagenation seemless, but that's the point. prefuse has made his own unique sound throwing bizarre old timey samples with hip-hop influenced vibes, i.e. southerners (interlude). while some may dispoit the hip-hoppidness of prefuse (i'm not really sure how though) it is clear that he is trying to form a bridge between hip-hop and for lack of a better genre, techno. dig on prefuses disregard for the statous quoe and his odd samples. it is clear that he didn't set out to make a dj shadow CD or an M83 joint, but make his own style and try to bridge their's. four words prefuse, dude...word...way word.

Prefuse 73 preformed by Hip-Hop Producer "Scott Herren" (who has a multitude of alias'), is an American producing highly experimental Hip-hop/Electronica to a country (in this case, America) that is largely resistant to 'Electronic' music, so in order for his brand of music to stand out, which is a bizarre mix of Turnablist trickery (ala DJ Shadow), paired up with an unstable mix of Aphex Twin's / Autechre's brand of "Glitch Techno"....than somehow manages to all come together into a by and large cohesive whole....admittedly it's not designed for mainstream appeal, as the constantly manipulation of sound & effects, will send all but the more diverse music listeners, diving behind their sofas in horror. As skittering beats and fragmented breakbeats, sit happily alongside eccentric mixing and gritty production, with superbly pleasing results. Think "Aphex Twin" with a Hip-Hop record collection & a mixer, in some his most creative production, and you have a fair idea as to what to expect, although it would be unfair to say it's all extreme 'Glitch', as some tracks are far more Complex in their construction, that anything "Aphex Twin" has committed to recording. Although it's unlikely his homeland will greet him with open arms...in the confines of Britain's wildly eclectic musical diversity, it's a fair bet to assume he'll carve out a hardcore following here in the UK.

Prefuse is by far one of the most interesting and best techno/IDM artists to pop out with in the last decade. Which is amusing because he really doesn't fit into either of those catagories despite being lumped with them. Instead, Scott Herren(the sole member of Prefuse) is one man DJ/Producer who seems like he's just as at home making beats for the next Kool Keith record as he would be colaberating for Autechre or any other "hardcore" techno artist. That right there is what helps elevate Prefuse beyond his peers: he does a perfect balancing act of invention and accessibility.
His album is set up almost like a Boards of Canada record. 21(listed tracks. They're are 23 in total) songs are scattered between short "songletts" to full-scale songs(which are relatively short compared to even BoC standards, much less Autechre's). It works because the shorter songs or sometime skits that are less developed and more transitional are left to pull you right into the full scale songs. The better news is that even some of the shorter tracks still sound awesome, like the coming out the front door screaming track, The End of Biters that basically kicks off the album. From their the album moves from glitchy hip hop(forementioned song, Plastic), to subtle ambience(Diatribe is a good , to weird beat patterns and vocal samples(the end of Altoid Addiction has some amusing banter if you use some imagination). All of this is mixed in with pride and panche for a solid hour of some of the most unique music you will here this year. If there is one complaint is that I wish there were more vocal tracks to balance everything out but its still so damn solid that to give this record anything less then 5 stars would be criminal. Could easily be the best of 2003(which would knock out current front runner Deftones easily).
